It's that time of year! While I'm not excited about all the weeding, I am eager for all the harvesting.
So far we have a few things up in the garden. My asparagus is back and this year we get to eat it! Since last year was the first year, I had to leave it alone. I posted a picture of Pierce on Instagram recently with asparagus that is waist high!
The garlic I planted last summer is up and doing well. Also up are carrots, peas, lettuce, and some onions Reid helped me plant. This is Cort with the garlic:
Last year I had 3 rhubarb plants but for some reason only one of them came back this year. I'm hoping it will do well - since I only have the one it needs to be a good producer so we can have crisps and jams. I will have to put more rhubarb in next fall.
Pierce helped me put in lima beans and brussel sprouts last weekend. And I also put in a green pepper (it is still a little early, so I only planted one) and some broccoli.
I am waiting on all the squashes until June, in hopes I'll miss the squash bug population this year. It is hard to wait though. Summer squash is one of my favorites! In the next couple of weeks I'll get tomatoes, potatoes, and beets in.
